Growing Calendar for Hippeastrum Elvas - Amaryllis Bulbs
Delivery: Mid September to Mid November
Hippeastrum 'Elvas' bulbs produce a spectacular double-flowered amaryllis, the perfect indoor Amaryllis bulb to add Christmas colour or to provide festive cut flowers. Left to flower naturally amaryllis bulbs can bloom at anytime between winter and spring but they are most often grown as spectacular Christmas pot plants. Each Amaryllis bulb sends up strap-like leaves followed by stout hollow stems topped with as many as five large trumpet-shaped flowers.
These large bulbs are often commonly called amaryllis but their correct botanical name is Hippeastrum. Hippeastrum bulbs are not hardy in the UK but they make superb indoor plants with spectacular blooms.
Bought in the November sale at a greatly reduced price so no complaint. Of the 5 bulbs 3 were quickly growing buds. 1 started about two weeks later and 1 is still thinking about it even though the bulb looks healthy and they were all treated the same.
Not had this one before looking good.
